Beating Internet Addiction With Chickens

Posted on 28 December 2019

With internet and app addiction becoming an issue for lots of kids around the world, an interesting tactic has come forward to help combat the problem. A city in Indonesia is hoping to replace screens with pets and plants. 

The city of Bandung in West Java has just launched a new program where students receive baby chickens and chilli seeds in an effort to steer them away from screens. The idea is that they’ll spend more time looking after their new pets and plants and less time on their devices.
